Aaron Bigelow, 31, was placed back in the Hillsdale County Jail after his arraignment yesterday in Hillsdale County District Court. He is charged with breaking into a vehicle, conspiracy, larceny from a vehicle, and resisting and obstructing police. He also is accused of stealing a vehicle and breaking into a home.
Hillsdale police captured Bigelow in the water off Sandy Beach in Baw Beese Lake Thursday night. In an attempt to escape from officers, he jumped into the lake and began swimming. Officers commandeered a pontoon boat and arrested the fleeing man in the water.
Bigelow, who was paroled from prison May 18 for breaking into a building with intent to steal, will be back in court July 10.
